Pentax cs-205 cable remote and K-1

Hello fellow Pentaxians

I received my K-1 on Juli the 1st and i'm still learning.

It occurs to me that the Pentax CS-205 cable remote can be connected to the cam, just under the sd-card door, but: with me the only thing happening is focusing, taking the shot won't occur.

Any tips/trics on this?

Thanks in advance.
Regards.

Have you fitted it correctly. This behaviour ist typical with k5 k3, and k20 when the cabel isn't mounted completly. May be that the connector has some "resistance". If taken some hundred shots with cable release - repro photos.

thanks great guys :-)
u motivated me to check it once more.
I will open it tomorrow. I think it might have a lose contact or worn cable/broken cable insight just weer it enters the control.
Wish me luck :-)))

Found the solution CS--205...

Indeed, probably a broken cable just where the cable enters the remote unit. So, i openen the unit, cut the cable about 2cm where i suppose the break was, connected the cable to the rest of the cable, closed the unit and... voila! it's work perfectly...

Thanks for all your responces here and b-good.
